CCV Renewal – Update to CAURA
May 2012
Presentation Objectives
1. To provide an overview of the changes in the renewed
Common CV (CCV) and support available
2. To introduce the Canadian Researcher Directory
1
Common CV Renewal: Background
• CCV launched July 2002 with the vision to reduce researcher administrative
burden in the capture of CV information for research funding applications
• An important system in the Canadian research funding application process
•
As of 2011, CCV includes 26 subscribing agencies; 100,000 registered accounts; over 32,000
CVs submitted in 2010-11
• In 2008, CCV Board recognized that vision no longer fully achieved due to
significant subscriber-specific customizations and out-of-date technology
• In 2009, Business Plan to renew CCV approved by the Board. Agreement
signed by Tri-Council to share the cost of the CCV application renewal
• 2009-12: CCV Committees and Working Groups provide input
•
•
Data Standards Committee: Defined new CCV Consolidated Data Set. Comprised of
representatives from CCV subscribers, research institutions, standards experts and CASRAI
Working Group of CCV Subscribers: Provided input into design. Volunteer representatives of
subscribers, bi-monthly meetings where feedback sought on CCV design considerations.
• March 2012: New three year agreement signaling a renewed Tri-Council
commitment to the CCV. Announced renewed CCV will go live June 19, 2012

Renewal: Addressing Current Pain Points
CCV Today
CCV Renewal
Minimal data harmonization
• Data common to all subscribers is less
than 25% - significantly lower than
target of 80% set when CCV was
launched
• Similar data being requested on
multiple subscriber screens
100% Common Data Set: defined by CCV Data
Standards Committee
• Subscribers select data required to support their
specific program needs
• Researchers prompted to complete only the data
required for task they are completing
• Data entered once; available to all subscribers
Interfaces with PubMed and Research Institutions
systems will minimize data input requirements
• Continuing to look at ways to reduce data entry
and improve data standardization / integrity (e.g.
ORCID)
Built on aging technology using outdated
web design principles
• Multiple popup windows; default
browser configurations now prevent
pop-ups
• Inflexible architecture structures do not
allow for easy modification or changes
to meet different stakeholder
requirements
• Slow system performance (especially
PDF Generation)
• New browsers, tablets and Apple
products not fully supported
Built using current web development best practices
• Supports current web navigation practices
• Device and browser independent - supports any
browser or device (e.g. iPad, Macs, tablets, PC,
Google Chrome)
• More dynamic management model allowing both
CCV and individual subscriber agencies to manage
CV data and templates at the agency or program
in real time
• ‘Thin’ web architecture – processing occurs at the
server level, not on the page
• Built on a fully redundant secure environment

Renewal Feedback to Date
•
•
Most subscribers are excited about the new system and believe that it offers
additional functionality that will appeal to researchers
Subscribers believe that CV template approach is an improvement
–
•
•
Provides the flexibility required to meet their individual program requirements and can quickly and
easily make changes to their CVs without development costs
New organizations looking to join the CCV as costs to implement no longer
prohibitive
As with any new system, there will be a period of adjustment for fine-tuning and
further improvements
– Users should anticipate that extra time will be required to get familiar with the
new system and additional data requirements
• 90% of data will be migrated from the current CCV
• Biggest change will be the requirement to enter contributions information as data;
Linkage with PubMed has been included to reduce data input. Exploring options to
add additional integration with other systems
• Ability to transfer data with research institution internal systems available
– Search capabilities are not very user friendly – will be enhanced
– The CCV form (PDF) is generic and is not currently formatted – will be
addressed in future versions
